1 Description

The figure below shows an overview over the IntiQuan workflow tools (IQR Tools) that have been developed for more than 14 years for use in modeling & simulation analyses across the areas of systems biology, systems pharmacology, and pharmacometrics.

Development of IQR Tools was driven by the vision that the manual steps an analyst has to conduct should be reduced to a minimum, and allowing for fully script based and thus reproducible analyses.

This is what we at IntiQuan call “Workflow”

IntiQuan workflow tools (IQR Tools)

The figure below depicts the typical scenario in pharmacometric modeling and simulation environments. A computer system is made available to a user that has many different software packages installed and it is up to the user to convert data, models, and analysis outputs from one software to the other – most of the time in a manual manner that is prone to errors and lacks reproducibility by design.

The following is NOT what we call a “Workflow”

Typical approach in pharmacometrics

IQdesktop provides the IntiQuan Workflow system with all required software as a Docker image that is suitable for deployment across operating systems:

  • Windows 10
  • MacOS
  • Linux

and across IT system architectures:

  • Local computers
  • Servers
  • Cloud (e.g. AWS)
